Benen claimed that throughout the imaginary IRS scandal, theres [been] an interesting pattern of events that serves as a template for every development. It starts with an alarming report, which is followed by scrutiny, which leads to details that make the original report appear meaningless.
Benen didn't have the same view of scandals during the Bush years. From Benens post (emphasis added):
The [IRS] controversy began with reports that the [agency] targeted conservative groups, there was a natural reaction: thats unacceptable. But then the relevant details came out and in reality the tax agency scrutinized liberal, conservative, and non-ideological groups, effectively ending the story. Every allegation, including conspiracy theories about White House involvement, evaporated into nothing.
More recently the scandal produced headlines about the IRS destroying important email messages, which again led fair-minded people to a simple conclusion: thats outrageous. But then the relevant details came out, the allegations fell apart, and it was again time to move on.
MSNBC....imaginary network. Rachel Madcow is still Keith Olbermann’s ugly nephew.
Liberal girlymen say that to all the boys when their boy gets caught in the act.
Benen does not have a smidgeon of a clue.
That boy lookalike’s two viewers nod their head in agreement
I have often wondered why the addresses and home phone numbers of these nutjobs are not gathered and printed up somewhere.
Who’s this person? And more importantly this guy needs to tell Lois Learner she doesn’t need to take the fifth & fire her lawyer since its all imaginary.
This thing really does seem to be gaining traction, the lesbians and Queers are getting nervous.
Rachel Maddow and Justin Bieber are never seen in the same place at the same time. Just sayin’.
Another product of the public/government education system.
A flat out, deliberate lie.
As long as the IRS is targeting conservative groups Benen couldn’t care less.
You can't say she's doing much damage (except to cable subscribers who are forced to pay for MSNBC!), because she has no viewership to speak of.
Nice work if you can get it.
“MSNBC....imaginary network. “
Don’t you mean Pmsnbc? Fortunately, I have never seen it.
It is not even on cable here.
Bill Gates should be ashamed of himself for letting them use Microsoft.

I like Mark Levin’s description of them.
